This is a heavy but nicely balanced razor. You don't need to apply much pressure to get a terrific shave. It even has a razor level gage adjuster, start with no. 1 or 2 and move to higher levels depending on skin sensitivity or beard growth. Be careful adjusting when razor is wet as it can be slippy but once you get used to it and use a good blade such as a feather blade you will get a great shave every time. Worth every penny for such a clean smooth shave.

I have big hands and a very tough beard so this is the one for me, I use it on 4 setting with Feather blades and Proraso white tub soap.
I cannot complain about any of the above products.
The Futur Merkur is the Daddy!

Hard to find fault with this razor, I like the weight in my hand and the precise way it shaves.
No complaints.
A good buy, fast delivery and a pleasure to deal with the seller.

My first adjustable razor and I'm glad I chose this one. I have been looking at this for a while and finally put down the money. It has a great weight to it, just heavy enough for comfort. A tad heavier than my Merkur 34C.

Loaded with a Feather blade you can't go wrong. Just make sure to start with a lower number and ease your way up!

Firstly, great service from ESC. Well packed and timely delivery which is a big big plus in my books. A bit daunting at first due the physical size of the head, but it is beautifully made and wonderfully balanced and weighty. Still quite a beast after a life of cartridges. My first DE shave after a 30+ year hiatus was made easy with the adjustable settings. I am only marking it down a touch as it is not quite the razor a return to DE, but as a shaving tool I am incredibly happy.

Lovely looking razor,especially in chrome. Love the weight of it. Make sure you clean regular, as advised by manufacturer, more so if (like me) you live in a hard water area. The head is a bit high but I've had no problems with it on a second pass unlike those 3 blade or 5 blade cartridges.
